History: “G” stands for Grafenberg, the gynecologist who “discovered” the spot. In 1950 he wrote an academic article about the role of the urethra in female sexual response, particularly with regard to orgasm through vaginal penetration. The “G-spot” was named by researchers Beverly Whipple and John Perry, 30 years after Grafenberg’s original article was published.

Don't Obsess Over the G Spot: A recent study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine sparked controversy when it claimed that the holy grail of women's sexual experience - the G-spot - may not exist. Experts who have faith in the spot say it lies in the same place that a man has a prostate gland (very near the urethra), so you will know you have found it if you feel the urge to urinate when it is stimulated. See Dr. Mehmet Oz' (Vice-Chair and Professor of Surgery at Columbia University) detailed explanation of how to find your G-spot.
But, whether or not experts believe the G-spot exists, they all agree you shouldn't get hung up on finding it. If the search is fun, by all means keep exploring (and some recommend beginning on your own before asking your partner to join in the hunt). But if it's taking away from your pleasure, skip it. Clitoral orgasms are easier to achieve for most women.
1 AnswerThe buildup required for orgasm stimulated by the G-spot is, for most women, long and slow and intense. Don’t worry about taking “too long” -- the longer it takes, the bigger the orgasm. Stop if it hurts. Learning about the G-spot and what it can do for you is recreational. You can have a perfectly satisfactory and happy sex life without ever doing anything with it -- and a lot of women do. Your decision to learn more about this intense new kind of stimulation is like a daily jogger deciding to run her first mini-marathon. It takes something you already know and love to a profound new level -- but it is a hobby, something you do for fun and pleasure, not because you have to. G-spot stimulation isn’t for everyone. If it hurts, stop.
1 AnswerDr. Eva B. Cwynar, MD , Internal Medicine, answeredImagine being able to enhance the quality of your orgasms simply by having a quick and nearly painless injection in a doctor's office. The G-spot amplification shot allows you to do this. Designed strictly for sexual enhancement, this procedure has helped thousands of women dramatically improve their sexual satisfaction. This is a controversial procedure and is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration, mainly because there is no consensus as to where the G-spot is, or even if it really exists. I have included it here just to let you know that there are indeed a wide variety of options for women who are interested in improving their sex lives.
The procedure starts with the physician locating the G-spot using a specially designed speculum to take measurements. Next, a local anesthetic is injected into the area where the G-spot has been located. Once the anesthetic has taken effect a synthetically engineered human collagen is injected into the G-spot, creating a marble-sized nub that pushes up against the spot. Dr. Dolores Kent, a Los Angeles-based pioneer in specialized vaginal procedures, states, "Four hours later, the woman is good to go. She can make love that night, and the benefits of the procedure last for about three months." This is not for women who don't have orgasms at all, but for women who want to enhance the sensations they already have. Many of her patients are women in their 30s who describe their sexual satisfaction level as a 6 before the procedure, and as a 10 after it is done.
The cost of the shot varies from physician to physician, averaging about $1,600.00. While Viagra, penile injections, and prosthesis for men are covered by most health-insurance plans to enhance male sexual fulfillment, G-spot amplification is still considered elective cosmetic surgery and therefore not yet covered by health plans. However, as long as you are practicing safe sex with your partner, the cost may be justified, as great sex is so beneficial for your physical and mental health.

To sum up, I’ll give you three general guidelines to follow while you’re exploring the G-spot: Start slow, go long, and relax.
1:Start slow. Remember, the G-spot is easier to find and more erotically sensitive when you’re already aroused. Spend time with nonpenetrative stimulation before you go for the G-spot.
2:Go long. Take your time and allow your arousal level to build. Feel free to alternate between G-spot and clitoral stimulation, or do both simultaneously. G-spot stimulation can generate a very intense level of arousal, but it often takes time to build up. Allow for half an hour or even an hour -- it’s better than a long, hot bath!
3:Relax. Because it can take time, you might worry that it’s taking too long, or you might start wondering if it’s working. Remember: Your definition of success is enjoying this new experience and not wondering if you’re doing it “right.” If it feels good, you’re doing it right. Allow yourself to feel good without having any goal beyond just experiencing this pleasure.
G-spot play is all about expanding your sexual potential and exploring your sexual landscape. Getting to know your body and all the glorious things it can do for you is a reward in and of itself. Give the G-spot a try and see how it changes your sexuality
The vagina does not go straight up and down. For most women, it is angled toward the abdomen. If you put pressure there, you might feel like you have to pee. That’s because you’re essentially pressing against the urethra, and your brain is interpreting that sensation as a need to pee.
It might also be that pressure against the G-spot just hurts. If that’s true for you, there are a couple things that might be causing the pain. The first is the G-spot itself. You might be one of the women not wired for pleasurable G-spot stimulation. Don’t worry -- there are plenty of other ways for you to have an orgasm. It might also be that the pain is related not the to G-spot but to penetration itself. Friction burns and can cause irritation. A last source of pain might be inflammation or infection of the vagina. Yeast infections, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and other imbalances of the vaginal flora can cause burning, itching, and irritation
1 AnswerA crucial rule of G-spot stimulation is to pee first. This is mostly for psychological reasons: When you’re very aroused, it’s very difficult to pee, but stimulation of the G-spot sometimes feels like needing to pee. If you know your bladder is empty, you can relax.

Women usually do not have a single spot like some magic sex-me-here button, but rather an area like the nerves spread over the surface of the male prostate. In fact, the G-spot is an area in the vaginal wall that is parallel to a gathering area of nerves on the male prostate. Why? Because as a woman's reproductive organs develop in utero (when she's in the womb), her rudimentary prostate moves away so these nerves end up on vaginal wall. To put this knowledge into application, when you insert your index finger upwards into the vagina and make the "come here" movement, you will touch the G-spot region that exists in some women. The region is often not that sensitive, ironically, but you never know until you try.

For most women, mastering G-spot stimulation takes practice. If you make orgasm your goal, chances are you’ll fall short of that goal and that might feel demoralizing. Instead, make the creation of intense and pleasurable new experiences your goal. You’ll hit the mark every time. Remember, it’s not a competition and you are not being rated. The best way to improve your sex life is to enjoy the sex you’re having.
2 AnswersDr. Mehmet Oz, MD , Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease), answeredThe G-spot seems elusive, but it's located behind the belly button, about one to two inches along the front vaginal wall. If you wonder what it feels like, use your thumb to feel the roof of your mouth. That rougher ridged area just behind your teeth is similar to what the G-spot feels like.
